Thanks for the information on glasses donation - Now that Zenni and I are making buddies, I'll be able to donate :)

I am very fond of my contacts - so far I can still sleep in them, though I know that's not preferable.  Waking up and being able to see is awesome.  My Rx being so different, I don't even need the eye office to put stickers on them for Left and Right, but they do anyway.

Here's a question about Mpntessori schools.  A relative who's been home schooling her children is sending them to a Montessori school for the fall term.  One of the children is 10 and the other is 8.  I always thought that Montessori schools were for younger children.  What is the usual cut-off point?

I think Montessori schools for younger children are more common, but there *are* schools for elementary age or older children.

One of the public elementary schools in my county (pre-K-5th grade) has a Montessori program.

I know of at least 2 Montessori schools in my area that go through highschool level.

It's ridiculously amazing. I had lasik done a few years ago, and I still get giddy at the thought. :)

Here in Maryland we have Montessori school from K-12.
